In October 2009 Circus undertook a highly successful Bouncing Back Tour of bushfire affected communities. The Bouncing Back Tour - workshops and shows - was delivered to bushfire affected communities in Kinglake, Flowerdale and Marysville. Circus Oz performers worked with children from primary schools at Kinglake, Middle Kinglake, Kinglake West, Flowerdale, Buxton, Marysville, Taggerty and Thornton, and incorporated those kids into our show under our very own Big Top.
The relationship established in late 2009 has continued through to 2013, where more than 500 members of the communities visited Circus Oz's Big Top in Melbourne to see Circus Oz perform. Organised through EACH Social and Community Health, the community travelled down as a group to experience a celebratory occasion together.
